Why did Mr Krishna choose to quit. Wat orompted him to depart all of a sudden Is it because of the pending issues with the Lokayukta at Karnataka.He is unlike the present day Politicians who do not step down till the name is cleared of the allegations.(Sundaram)
I agree with my friend Ramesh Agarwal. He was to be dropped. Hence, the only option for him was to resign.
As External Affairs or Foreign Minister, is India's face to the outside world. The person needs to be dynamic and high performer. Krishna never fitted in this role. I am surprised how they allowed him to continue all this time.
Those who watched the joint press conference of Krishna and the dynamic young woman Foreign Minister of Pakistan recently might have noted how poor Krishna was.
Being a Chief Minister of a state and Foreign Minister of the country is completely different. Krishna can do well in his state Karnataka.
This resignation has no links to any pending issue with Lokayukta. It was just a face saving action - actually he must have been told to resign.
